Each school day begins in the Chapel. Although our community includes a variety of religious faiths, we worship in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Episcopal Church. Chapel services rely on a dedicated team of student leaders—choristers, acolytes, readers, ushers, and sacristans. The Chaplain and the Headmaster share sacramental responsibilities. Faculty members, students, and guests, frequently speak in Chapel, making it a place where the School community comes together to learn and grow.
Solemn Mass is celebrated on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m., when family, friends, and visitors are invited to worship with us.
